Safeguarding is at the heart of our Christian faith.

A message from Bishop Graham about safeguarding:

“The Diocese of Norwich is committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults to worship and grow in Christ safely. I take that commitment very seriously and believe that making our churches safe for all is everyone’s responsibility. To enable that, our diocesan safeguarding team provides professional advice and training, as well as supporting those who may have suffered abuse. I commend to you the important policies and procedures detailed here. It is my prayer that they will help to ensure that all can flourish.”

The Church of England is committed to the safeguarding, care and nurture of everyone within our church community. You can view the national Church of England safeguarding site here.

In all these principles we will follow legislation, guidance and recognised good practice.
